K-ACHDF | Available Carbohydrates & Dietary Fibre

Product code: K-ACHDF

The Available Carbohydrates/Dietary Fiber test kit is an integrated procedure for the measurement and analysis of available carbohydrates and dietary fiber in cereal products, fruit and vegetables and food products

Description

An integrated procedure for the measurement of Available
Carbohydrates and Dietary Fiber in cereal products, fruit and
vegetables and food products

Principle (Dietary Fiber):
(α-amylase + amyloglucosidase)
(1) Starch + H2O → glucose

(protease)
(2) Protein + H2O → peptides

(3) Dietary fiber determined gravimetrically following
alcohol precipitation

Principle (Available Carbohydrates):
(sucrase / maltase + β-galactosidase)
(4) Sucrose, maltose and lactose → D-glucose + D-fructose
+ D-galactose

(PGI, hexokinase + glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase)
(5) D-Glucose + D-fructose + ATP + NADP+ → gluconate-6-phosphate
+ NADPH + ADP + H+

Kit size:                             100 assays of each
Application examples:
Food ingredients, food products and other materials
Method recognition:
Dietary Fibre - AOAC (Methods 985.29, 991.42, 991.43 and 993.19)
and AACC (Methods 32-05.01, 32-07.01 and 32-21.01)
